Monday Randomness

The randomness is piling up, so I figured I might as well share it while I've got it. First off, I noticed someone mentioned 'Explore' on one of my flickr photos over the weekend, and it was only then that I thought to look at my current 'explored' status. Lo and behold, I found several I hadn't known about. Here's my current Scout poster:

To make your own, go to Big Huge Labs, and scroll down till you see 'Scout' on the right-hand side. Click there and all you have to do is enter your Flickr ID. You can also go to flicker-explorer.com and enter your ID, though the two don't always give the same info. I find Scout more all-encompassing. Anyway . . . interesting.

I also saw that Giveaway Day has been announced! More info will be coming, but it's a great day to interact with other bloggers by giving away something handmade or sewing/craft supplies on your blog. If you can join in at all, do!
Giveaway Day

Jennifer has finished a few of the Hurricane Sandy Help! quilts! So far this is my fav!
Hurricane Sandy Relief Quilt #1 

And lastly, though I had intended to have some Mod Pop quilting to show off today, unfortunately I can only show you the backing I've chosen (V and Co. Simply Color Ikat Diamonds in Eggplant) . . .
because I spent most of my free-sewing time this weekend organizing my stash closet.
But since it now looks like this, I'm ok with the slow-go on the quilting.
Though I really need to get over the dreaded piecing-the-backing and basting steps . . . then I'll be on my way again!

A good selection of random there. Alas, apparently no-one loves me on explore. Probably because I only upload on hey days and holidays ;o)

You have about a million more orange than I do! (It's okay...I have about a million more reds!)

Jennifer said...

pretty pretty!! love the backing choice for the mod pop! so what does it mean to have been explored? haha

Kirsten said...

Your fabric stash looks so tidy - I have just been going through all mine looking for some fabric which you sent to me a while ago so really need to organise my stash better too!

Candice said...

Ouuuu, Ahhhh, LOVE your stash closet :)!! Such fun fabrics!

Leanne said...

I saw that your mod pop was explored, I am going to tell Julie. I love your fabric cupboard but it looks like you have room for more.

Denise Russell said...

So... I am not the only one who doesn't care to piece backings??? Phew!

Danielle Hudson said...

I'm not sure what being explored is, but I checked, and I haven't been;)

Carla said...

Ive not done a mosaic yet, but I want to. Your stash looks delicious Debbie. "See" you tomorrow.

Rachel said...

If you want another reason to delay working on Mod Pop, you can always come over and organize my stash. :)
